Olive trees pruning services
We offer specialised pruning for olive trees in Italy.
Our team is specialised in the polyconic vase olive growing system and are available for pruning olive trees for private and other farms in the area surrounding Solopaca.
Pruning an olive tree following the polyconic vase system allows the olive tree to intercept a high amount of energy and favours the exposure to light of leaves and fruiting surface. In addition, the polyconic vase leads to a simplification of the harvesting operations thanks to the positioning of the fruits mainly in the medium-low portion of the foliage.
If you are interested in our pruning services or require more information please contact us.
Olive oil tasting courses and events
We organise olive oil tasting courses for private individual, for businesses and for shops where we sell our extra virgin olive oil.

Cultivation of olive groves
Taking care of out olive trees is the essence of our job.
During the year we carefully take care of our gorgeous olive trees.
We keep them healthy by pruning them, by feeding them only with organic and environmentally sustainable products, and by using non-intensive and traditional olive harvesting methods.
In addition to organic products, in our olive groves, we use humus made from manure obtained by other local farms in Solopaca.
By 2023 we will become a certified organic farm.
The way we look after our olive groves means that the our extra virgin olive oils are of high quality, with great taste and aroma and are produced in an environmentally sustainable way.
